Quiet Lake in Fall - on Masa
This hasn't been much of a painting weekend except for classes and practice, so I'm uploading some of those paintings done earlier that I haven't yet posted.
This fall view of one of our Oxford lakes was done on Masa rice paper - creating some of the textural fractures in the foliage, sky and lake - interesting effects.
If I had painted it this weekend, I see much that I would change ---
It rained all day yesterday - every drop precious in our drought conditions - and the storm that passed also sported several tornato touch-downs in the area. We, thankfully, were spared from the worst of it - but the wind was mighty gusty all day.
I've a full day of meetings so I'll be off line until tomorrow ...
Hope your day is terrific!
